The historic village of Bunratty is one of the great attractions on Ireland's west coast. Only five miles from Shannon Airport, the village is famous for the 15th Century Bunratty Castle, which lays on a varied programme of events for visitors. The castle, with its imposing square towers and arches, is located where the river Bunratty flows into the Shannon Estuary. Visitors crossing the ancient moat are invited to take guided tours of the castle interior, which has been authentically restored with furniture, tapestries and paintings and where lavish medieval banquets, complete with colourful entertainments, are open to the public every evening during the summer. The castle's extensive grounds have been transformed into a folk park where cottages, grand houses and streets recreate the atmosphere of 19th Century Ireland and costumed characters demonstrate traditional skills such as baking and weaving. Irish music and dance are celebrated nightly in the park's large barn. Bunratty has some fascinating shops, including a woollen mills complex, where customers can find tasteful gifts, homeware and clothing, and a number of friendly restaurants and pubs, notably the celebrated Durty Nelly's. The village is an excellent base for walkers, anglers and golfers, with a choice of nearby courses
